Substitution of Bearing Races Grinding Operations of Large-Diameter Cylindrical Bearings by Hard Turning


Article Preview

Maintaining positions in the highly competitive environment of global markets in the field of rolling bearings causes constant need for production efficiency increase. The products now have higher quality demands along with shorter production times and reduced production costs. The aim of the article is to optimize finishing manufacturing processes of bearing races, after the analysis of quality demands of large-diameter bearings, manufacturing options and examining of current knowledge about hardened steels turning, focusing on the replacement of grinding operations by hard turning operations with intention to minimize machine time and production cost together with keeping the quality of machined surface.
